The Midium® interviews Antoine Petroff of Kernom
August 15, 2023
From the simple tremolo pedals of the late 1940s to the most unusual multi-effects units of the 2020s, the world of guitar pedals is a sort of "final frontier" for artists who experiment with sound. Today, in Paris, France, four friends run a special company named Kernom. Through Kernom, they (Antoine Petroff, Charles Riche, Jeremy Savonet, and Nicolas Joos) design and build effects pedals inspired by an approach that draws from music, science, design, and architecture. Antoine tells us the story of how Kernom came to be, and the essence of the Kernom RIDGE and the Kernom MOHO.
The Midium® interviews Piotr Raczyński of Polyend
September 06, 2022
Interviewing Piotr Raczynski of Polyend introduced us to the industrial beginnings of the Polyend brand, Raczynski's own musical projects, and the ethos behind their MIDI sequencer and sampler aptly named the Polyend Play. A mix of listening to large machines work in concert and watching their synchronized movements plow through different phases of mass production while working at a factory, along with his own love of music and passion for music technology, inspired Raczynski to invent electronic musical instruments through the company he would go on to establish: Polyend.
/// FEEDBACK FROM ARTISTS
"Met with the owner, one of the nicest people I’ve ever met! He offered to even deliver it himself! 10/10, do yourself a favor and order from this amazing new store!!"
– Darren C.
"Super fast shipping, great personal communication, and bespoke environmentally conscious packaging. Was really happy to have found one of these available (amazing unique synth) and couldn't have asked for more in acquiring it from The Midium. Thanks!"
– Ben D.
"If you are considering a purchase from The Midium, just do it. They are friendly, gracious, and provide outstanding service. Their communication is excellent, they ship quickly, and they are a joy to work with. Almost like that friendly neighborhood shop you had near you 20 years ago: a place you could go hang out, soak up all the music vibe, and chat with good people. Well, here it is again, online and at Reverb: your friendly neighborhood music shop. And GOMEZ will pack your box!"
– Ken C.
"Definitely the most thoughtful online transaction I've ever had. Quick shipping, extremely communicative, wrapped instrument, handwritten letter with amazing handwriting... Very impressive! Highly recommended, I will be back. I mean seriously this is probably the first time I've ever left a review longer than five words. Thank you!"
– Corbin C.
The Midium is awesome. Quick ship, great prices, and the nicest packaging I’ve ever gotten on Reverb and maybe anywhere else online as well. These guys are an awesome, small family biz (literally, employee #3 is like 8 months old 😏). Seriously y’all throw em yr biz, they are building something the right way.
– Johnathan C.
Cam, the co-owner of The Midium, goes above and beyond regular customer service. He himself drove 2 hours from L.A. to personally deliver the Lyra-8 I ordered from him, the very same day I placed the order! That’s unheard of. Even Amazon isn’t that fast! The way the product was packaged also shows the care and love they put into musical gear. I would absolutely order again from The Midium store if I have the chance!
